Bungles Class Store

Bungles is our classroom store that is run entirely by the students of Room 111. Students will fill out a job application for their desired job and interviews will be conducted for management positions. In preparation of the Grand Opening, advertising agents will work on creating posters and flyers to promote the store opening and then run the ticket/raffle system each day. Managers will put a price tag on every item and also take careful inventory of each item. Sales representatives receive training on customer service, handling money and making change, and writing receipts. Our store will run all year long and will be open during the morning snack/bathroom break. Students will receive a weekly paycheck every Friday which they will need to pay their desk rent. (See below for more info about desk renting/ownership.)

Desk Rent

In order to use your desk and enjoy its privileges, you must pay a rental fee of one Dingo per week. Rent will be collected every Monday morning and must be paid in full and on time. If you cannot afford your rent you must “move out.” This means removing all of your belongings from your desk and moving them into your locker. Your desk will then be turned around and you will no longer have the privilege of keeping anything inside your desk. Once you come up with your rent money you can move back in.


Desk Ownership

You have the opportunity to buy your desk for 10 Dingos. Once you own your desk you will no longer have to pay rent on it. You can also buy other students’ desks for 10 Dingos as long as they don’t already own it. If you own the desk of another student, every Monday that student now has to pay rent to YOU. If that student wants to buy his/her desk back, he/she can buy it back from the current owner for 10 Dingos + one Dingo interest (11 Dingos total).

(My desk is available to buy for 25 Dingos. The owner will collect two Dingos from me each week in rental income.)
